A new ad titled "A Message From Barbara Bush" was released Friday by Jeb Bush's campaign where the former first lady is heard praising her sons accomplishments as well as making obvious digs towards Donald Trump who only "talks about how popular" he is rather than talking about "real solutions," Politico reports.
"Jeb has been a very good father, a wonderful son, a hard worker. His heart is big," she said in the 30-second spot which features photos of Bush and family while on the campaign trail.
"When push comes to shove, people are going to realize Jeb has real solutions, rather than talking about how popular they are, how great they are," she said. "He's doing it because he sees a huge need, and it's not being filled by anybody."
Although Jeb's mother told NBC's Matt Lauer in 2013 that "There are other people out there that are very qualified and we've had enough Bushes," she quickly changed her tone last February when her son prepared to run.
Now, echoing the slogan, "Jeb can fix it," Barbara Bush added, "of all the people running, he seems to be the one who could solve the problems. I think he'll be a great president."
The new ad is also in coordination with a handwritten letter asking voters to support her son.
In the letter she wrote, "People ask me if I wanted Jeb to run. The answer was no as the sacrifice for his family was huge. I changed my mind as it became clear he is needed. I admit to being prejudice as I am his mother."
